Spurs' role players step up in win

Spurs' role players step up in win

The San Antonio Spurs have officially listed Kawhi Leonard as questionable for Game 6 against the Rockets in Houston on Thursday night. Leonard departed Tuesday's Game 5 due to a left ankle injury but quickly answered "Yeah, I'm going to be able to play" when quizzed during Wednesday's off-day media availability.

San Antonio's All-Star said after the game that it was "a little sore" and he was limping. But we will be ready on Thursday.

Aldridge, who is in his 11th season and second in San Antonio, had failed to get out of the second round in his previous six postseason trips. They're a fast-paced team that likes to shoot on the perimeter. "It's going to be about taking care of the ball, playing confident and trying to minimize our mistakes".

Without their star forward, the Spurs pulled through in overtime and won 110-107 to take a 3-2 series lead. For his professional tenure, he has averaged 16.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists across 30.5 minutes per game. Patty Mills figures to draw the start at point guard for the second straight game after scoring 20 points and knocking down five 3-pointers during Game 5.

"We let one slip away", Harden said. The Spurs' six shot advantage was the result of two things: San Antonio's offensive rebounding and Houston's turnovers.

Harden will get his numbers in Game 6, but will he get enough of them to force a Game 7? D'Antoni is going with a seven-man rotation which puts the onus on his mainline guys to not cave in an elimination game.

Leonard had 22 points and 15 rebounds in 38 minutes before exiting with an injured right ankle.

The Spurs know that limiting Golden State's 3-point shooting will be a key in the next round, just as slowing Houston from long range was in the conference semifinals. The Rockets, who set an National Basketball Association record by making 1,081 3s in the regular season, have averaged 20.5 3-pointers in their two wins and just 13 in the three losses. "Obviously, other players stepped up and made big shots, and that was the game". In Game 4, San Antonio allowed Houston to shoot 35 open or wide open threes, on which they connected 40% of them.

But if we lock in like we did tonight, limit our turnovers, limit their transition that gives us the best chance to win the game. Boston led by as many as 26 points, negating Washington's physicality by spreading the floor and knocking down 16 3-pointers.
